First ELA Grades Are Being Posted On Pupil Path
Grades are usually low in ELA in the beginning of the school year for a few reasons. Students are adjusting to a new environment and also new (sometimes harder) expectations. For some students, the work feels harder, because they aren't yet reading at grade-level. As students learn and master new skills, their CORE ELA grade will rise. HABITS grades are based on reading records and other in-class habits or at-home reading expectations.
Where Can I Find the Grading Expectations?
Grading expectations can be found on this website on the "Rubrics and Grading" page. Please feel free to email questions to your ELA teacher.
